The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams




"What is REAL? asked the Rabbit one day...

This a Forbidden Dragon recording. Read by Marlo Dianne.

Written in 1922, The Velveteen Rabbit, or, How Toys Become Real is the tale of a sweet unassuming toy rabbit who questions what it is to live and to love. It was the first children's title written by Margery Williams (1881 - 1944), who had previously created only for adults. This story eclipsed all others, to become her most famous work, and an ever adored classic for all ages.

"It was by a sort of accident that The Velveteen Rabbit became the beginning of all the stories I have written since...By thinking about toys and remembering toys, they suddenly become very much alive. Toys I had loved as a little girl...my almost forgotten Tubby, who was the rabbit, and Old Dobbin, the Skin Horse, and the toys my children had loved." --Margery Williams
